Anastasia is a wonderful teacher—intelligent, kind and generous with her time and knowledge. She presents new information in the context of historical movements and expands the lessons into the bigger scope of major events and influences on painting. I would highly recommend taking classes from Anastasia!

Had my first lesson last night to learn about night photography. I bought myself a fancy camera (Sony A7R4) and I had no idea how to use it or what any of the buttons did other than turning it on and having it set to auto. I didn’t know the first thing about photography other than point and shoot. Irina immediately had me change my camera to manual and told me to not use auto. I loved that! Irina also told me the lesson was going to be a lot of information for a beginner such as myself wanting to learn about my photography first. Yes, it was a lot to take in but, I can say that I left my lesson with Irina feeling way more confident about how to use my camera properly and I can’t wait to have additional lessons to learn more. Now I know the 3 basic settings of Shutter, Aperture and ISO and how they affect your shots and Irina even put together a booklet for me that explains the basics of photography that includes the need to know information on how to change settings depending on photography location, lighting time of day, desired effects etc. Fantastic job Irina and I can’t wait to learn more with additional lessons.

Great start to first lesson
Kathryn (Royal)
I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

Marcel is an extremely capable German tutor. He has an extensive understanding of German and will out of his way to help you learn.

I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)

I decided to take painting lessons from Morgan because while I have experience in drawing, I was a complete beginner when it comes to painting. Now after just a couple months of biweekly lessons, I feel like I have a good grasp on the fundamentals of oil painting. I've already painted several pieces that I really like. Morgan has been very supportive and knowledgeable the whole way through. I'm very glad I decided to take lessons from her.

Want to improve your realist drawing skills with ongoing step-by-step guidance and support? If so, I am here to provide students with a methodical approach to classical realism based on the traditions founded during the Renaissance. We will follow the curriculum I learned in studying classical art with emphasis on the handling of materials, accurate observation of 2-D shapes, the relationship between light and form and a how to bring a drawing to a high level of refinement. The exercises increase in difficulty as skills become more refined; this helps the student to not get overwhelmed and stay focused. Drawing is the foundation of all art and what you learn here will help guide you throughout your artistic career. I'm excited to work with you and look forward to helping you achieve your artistic goals!
